Great budget option in Playa del Carmen. Clean rooms, comfortable bed, good a/c, great location - far enough away from all the noise but heaps of good cafes/restaurants and cheap eats near by. Would stay here again. More

I was there one night, but could see staying longer another time. The place is attractive and within easy walking distance of the bus stop, the beach, and the "scene". There was a place to buy fruit a block away and fresh water was available onsite. The host and hostess are friendly and More

Hostel Rio Playa was all we hoped for & more! Felt more like family & friends - Andrea warmly hugged us when we left and recommended a fantastic seafood restaurant. Jesse (sp?) was so happy to be of service-I can tell he sincerely enjoys his job! The bartenders were great & also obviously More

Great location - it's just steps from the white sandy beach! There is a good sized kitchen for extended stays. A massive courtyard under a canopy of trees gives a nice shady spot to wind down with some beers and smokes and music after exploring playa, or a day at the beach. I will More

I was in Hostal Playa only 1night. It is just few blocks from the main street, the spaces are big and the staff is nice. But I have some bad comments: 1-I was in a female dormitory, it had no key in the door 2-In the room there was no electricity to recarge my phone and other 3- At night More

Good stay here with friendly staff and cool roof top bar that fills up each night. Short walk to the main part of town and the beach. There is always good food offers for dinner. Only criticism is the WiFi wasn't great but I wasn't too bothered by it. More

We really enjoyed our stay here - it's a good basic hostel. Marcus the owner couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. The location of the hostel is perfect for cheap food and shopping - escaping the expense of the hotel zone. Best of all is the hard drive of up to 500 movies - perfect for More

Bathrooms need to be wiped down throughly, and there should be a rule that not toiletries get kept in the bathroom because there was a heap of stuff stirring there that I never seen get used. Other then that the stuff are more then helpful. They encourage everyone to meet and socialise. More

Excellent hostel to stay in Playa del Carmen. The price is a little bit expensive, but you stay in a very beautiful house with access to beach. The breakfast is amazing, also you can use the kitchen freely during all day, including the pasta and rice. The hostel is clean and the wifi is More
